No H8 For This "Mile"

 

Yes, there can be successful actors/musicians! As the numbers proved over the weekend, the highly buzzed and anticipated 8 Mile finally opened with a whopping 51.2 million. I actually saw the film and enjoyed it, despite its flaws. But I can definitely see why people like it and why it just may define a generation. Expect this one to hold up pretty well in the coming weeks.

The Santa Clause 2 didn't get much of a drop with 24.7 million, now reaching a solid 60 million. Also doing quite well is The Ring, which has been holding steady for the past three weeks and is riding a ton of audience buzz. Expect it to pass 100 million shortly. This weekend it made 15.5 million.

I Spy looks like a dud with 8.8 this weekend, followed by Jackass: The Movie with 7.1 million. The party is starting to end for My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but it's still doing amazingly well with 5.8 million. Not only is it now being touted as the highest indie grosser of all time, but it's now the highest grossing film ever that never reached the number one spot on the box office charts.

Sweet Home Alabama is almost being evicted out of the top ten with 3.8 million, while Ghost Ship brought in another 3.1 million. Tying out for the last spots were Femme Fatale and Julie Taymor's Frida, each with 2.7 million.

Next weekend, be prepared as The Chamber Of Secrets opens...
